's watch, you feel it. if you are one of the americans who lack health insurance under president obama's first four years, you feel it. these are statistics for successful people to dismiss. let me just say i think that both republicans and democrats have missed a tremendous opportunity in the messaging on the economy. republicans have just talked about job creators, they talk about entrepreneurs. and they own that space a little bit. the president talks about, you know, having the wealthy pay their fair share and whatnot and ignores the debt in his inaugural speech yesterday. but most americans right now, most american households are neither job seekers nor job creators, they're job holders. and they don't fear losing their job or even replacing a lost job, but what they're saying now which is different than your father or grandfather is that the job is no longer enough. it's that life in america seems to be increasingly unaffordable. people say i have a job, my household has two or three jobs and we still can't make it. i think the republicans should take the opportunity to explain t

to the polls as african-americans, we are going to vote for barack obama as the better of the two candidates. but our responsibility than be caught -- then begins on the day after inauguration to push the president the way we want him to be pushed. a lot of people are going to push him in other directions with the tea party and -- so i think that efforts like the occupy movement are very important in terms of -- barack obama would understand, as a former career organizer, you do not get noticed, especially if you're poor and disadvantaged, unless you do something to bring attention to the issues that are important. tavis: i agree with everything you said except for one. when dr. king did pushed the wrong button for lyndon johnson, you heard the tapes. you are doing the work on the papers project. johnson had some nasty things to say about martin king on those tapes. once johnson pushed those bonds, other black leaders came out publicly against martin. even if martin tried mightily not to take a public stance, at some point he would have felt compelled to do so. once he had done so, were he s
president obama's speech yesterday. no longer does the president seek to portray himself as a moderate. he is thought an out-of-the closet liberal. that's no surprise. every american should have realized the president's left wing ideology long before the address. the problem we have in america is not, is not president obama. the problem is us. we, the people. have to decide whether we want to market based economy or a allow the federal government to control commerce including healthcare. the president believes in equality. that would be nice. equality is great. if there is a heaven, i assume we will see it there. on earth, equality is impossible. you cannot equate an american who holds a ph.d. with a high school dropout. no matter what president obama tells us the two will never be equal in the market place. therefore, the president seems to want to change the marketplace, putting the federal government in charge of who gets what. even in the private sector. now, yesterday, he confidently stated that his so-called progressive view will bring the nation prosperity. but it has not and it wil
the credit. i also think the big question for 2016 is who can carry -- who can make the obama coalition the democratic coalition. and if you look at those numbers, the washington post poll, she's high favorability among african-americans, among women, among hispanics, and lower educated voetders. >> do you think she will run the way the george w. bush's father did after a third term fn reagan? >> no. >> her ego -- >> right. but in terms of -- i think that's right. but in terms of the attachment and the enthusiasm of the base of the democratic voters, she has that. >> we're going to jump on it. i think she historically is to the left of jackson, somewhere around humphrey. right in the middle of the democratic party historically. she said we're the indispensable country. none of this pulling back, come home america. >> yes. tough, but one other point. you know what she did? she did concede we made mistax but she also when tested by ron johnson most notably, she did not back down. the liberal base of the party didn't want hillary clinton to go and concede everything on benghazi because the
, but it does require us to act in our time. >> millions of americans, of course, watched president obama lay out his vision for the country yesterday. keeping them honest, though, even as he spoke, another big washington power player was gearing up to advance its agenda. not lawmakers, judges or journalists. gearing up for battle to block bill os are change them usurp loop holes or widen them. you might like some of what they're doing but chances are you won't be pleased about this. a congresswoman who just got re-elected but is leaving already taking what she learned in congress to get paid big dollars, leaving the people who elected her, basically high and dry. drew griffin is keeping them honest. >> reporter: she may be the perfect example of what washington critics call the revolving door syndrome. congresswoman in drew griffin with cnn. which could explain why all we got from congresswoman joann emerson was the slam-door treatment. the southeast missouri republican is quitting congress. not because she lost. in fact, she just won her last election to her tenth term by a landslide. she's
, libya, on september 11th last year. that attack, of course, left four americans dead, including the u.s. ambassador to libya. at one point the issue brought her almost to tears. >> i stood next to president obama as the marines carried those flag draped caskets off the plane at andrews. i put my arms around the mothers and fathers, the sisters and brothers, the sons and daughters, and the wives left alone to raise their children. >> republican lawmakers have been fiercely critical, of course, of the obama administration's response to the attack in benghazi. then secretary clinton got a little fired up during some of the testimony. >> do you disagree with me that a simple phone call to those evacuees to determine what happened wouldn't have ascertained immediately that there was no protests? i mean, that was -- that was a piece of information that could have been easily, easily obtained. >> well, but senator -- >> within hours if not days. >> senator, i -- you know, when you're in these positions, the last thing you want to do is interfere with any other process going on. >> i realize
in benghazi, libya that killed four people. she also responded to criticism that the obama administration misled the public about who carried out the attack. >> the fact is, we had four dead americans! >> i understand. >> was it because of a protest or because of guys out for a walk some night who decided they would go kill some americans? what difference at this point does it make?! >> reporter: but some lawmakers were not satisfied with clinton's testimony. >> all these warnings, all these things -- we didn't have a single department of defense asset apparently available to come to the rescue. the american people and the families of these four brave americans still have not gotten the answers that they deserve. >> reporter: secretary of state hillary clinton was supposed to be here on capitol hill last month but postponed her testimony after suffering a concussion and developing a blood clot near her brain. clinton testified that the fbi has some promising leads into who carried out the attack. >> what they are trying to determine is how best to res
the obama doctrine. put simply, it's to continue the american revolution well into the 21st century. defined economic equality for women, full equality all out for gay people. and full political and financial opportunity for people of color. everything about yesterday screamed with this manifesto from the makeup of the crowd to the people in the inaugural platform to the entertainment to the words of the address to the jaunty walks along pennsylvania avenue by barack and michelle and the wild and woolly greetings of vice president joe biden. we're all part of this. they were shouting we're in this together and we're going to act together and we're going to try to open dialogue with those who would be our enemies abroad. we're not looking for another war this time and under this president we're looking for a way to avoid one. because these wars as we've all learned the hard way are a lot easier to start than to finish. let's start with this astounding presidential embrace of the ongoing american revolution from lexington and concord to seneca falls, selma, and stonewall. sam stein covers poli

americans dead in algeria. you just heard from nic. this is the response from president obama. one paper statement, one paragraph. he put it out the night the hostage crisis ended, that was a saturday night. now he has had a lot going on this weekend, for sure. there was the inauguration. there was the speech. there were the balls. and there were a lot of people to see from beyonce to alicia keys. but take a look at the response from our closest ally. british prime minister david cameron postponed a major speech to deal with the crisis and talked to television and parliament three times. >> it appears to have been a large well-coordinated and heavily armed assault and it is probable it had been preplanned. >> the world needs to come together to deal with this threat in north africa. >> this attack underlines the threat that terrorist groups pose to the countries and the peoples of that region, and to our citizens, our companies and our interests, too. >> britain, like the united states, lost three citizens in the crisis. democratic senator chris kunz of delaware joins me tonight. sir, th
to settle for instead? obama wants to turn the idea of absolutism into a dirty word. just another word for extremism. he wants you, all of you and americans throughout all of this country to accept the idea of principles as he sees fit. it is a way of redefining words so that common sense is turned upside down, and that nobody knows the difference. think about it for just a minute. as families, when we're broke, and all of our credit cards are maxed out, we're all forced to tighten our belts. but when government is broke, and our bond rating is tumbling, and the president wants more programs, borrowing more money is supposed to be principle. and anybody who questions that is a no-good absolutist, obama code for extremist. we as gun owners face that same kind of false ultimatum. we're told that to stop insane killers, we must accept less freedom. less than the criminal class, and the political elites. less than they keep for themselves. we're told that limits on magazine capacity or bans on 100-year-old firearm technology, bans that only will affect lawful people will somehow make us sa
was when two of the individuals, the americans, died. i could fly from here to london in seven hours or so. we couldn't get military assets there to protect americans who are under siege? so there's questions about what president obama was doing at the time during those long seven hours, and there's questions about why we didn't have military personnel there to protect our people who are in dire straits. >> congressman, the military is prepositioned in studegar, not even close. they say because it would be worse for us diplomatically to have a big footprint there. do you reject that? do you think we should have forward basing and do you think we should have marines at these outposts? >> again, we still don't know what went on prior to september 11th in terms of the requests that were made and especially how they were acted upon. three individuals, at least, have been put on administrative leave because of mistakes that were made, but how high up did it go? i'm shocked, frankly, that in an era where we want transparency, that secretary clinton herself was not interviewed by thomas pickering

and michael beschloss. >> i think par of what obama has to do in history is one line in the chart is the decline in household income. median household income. it's been falling for 12 years, the american dream a phrase going into the 1930's is in genuine peril, i'm not being yogi bear saying we're at the fork in the road and we should take the fork. it's a fact and the opportunity is going away. there may be a good business cycle coming but we know the long term trend here is heading in the wrong direction. >> rose: james taylor and presidentialis historians and journalists when we continue. captioning sponsored by rose communications from our studios in new york city, this is charlie rose. >> rose: james taylor's one of the most recognized voices in american music. the five-time grammy award winner sold close to 100 million albums. he's equally celebrated for his guitar playing, his lyrics and his distinct baritone voice. in 2011 taylor was awarded national medal of arts from the whitehouse and highest arne for artistic achievement. yesterday he performed president obama's seco
